Turkey Cutlets with Jalapeño Sauce

There was a time that we prepared this dish weekly.  It was one of our favorite meals.   How did we lose sight of what was right in front of us? In life as in food, as much things change they can stay exactly the same.



Turkey Cutlets with Jalapeño Sauce
Serves 4
Recipe from Cook Healthy

Ingredients:
1 pound turkey breast cutlets
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

2 teaspoons vegetable oil

Vegetable cooking spray
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/2 teaspoon peeled, minced ginger root

1/2 cup red jalapeño jelly
1/4 cup unsweetened apple juice
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon low-sodium Worcestershire sauce

2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon water
Green onion curls (optional)

Directions:
1.  Place cutlets between 2 sheets of heavy duty plastic wrap, and flatten to 1/8-inch thickness, using a meat mallet or rolling pin.  Combine flour and pepper; dredge turkey cutlets in flour mixture.

2.  Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot.  Add cutlets, and cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until done.  Transfer to a platter, and keep warm.  Wipe drippings from skillet with a paper towel.

3.  Coat skillet with cooking spray; place over medium high heat until hot.  Add sliced green onions and ginger root; sauté until tender.  Add jelly and next 3 ingredients.  Reduce heat, and cook until jelly melts and mixture is throughly heated.

4.  Combine cornstarch and water; stir until smooth.  Add to jelly mixture.  Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly.  Spoon sauce over turkey cutlets; garnish with green onion curls, if desired.

Enjoy!

In my whole life, I've never eaten, or even seen, a turkey cutlet (I led a sheltered life), but this makes me want to try one - it sounds delicious. The rice looks good as well.

An excellent use for jalapenos...something I don't cook with often enough.

I made a bunch of hot pepper jelly and unfortunately they are a little runny. This is a perfect way for me to sue it up!Perfect.
